Shaye’s Earth Day letter

We’ve been talking about how people affect the environment in our homeschooling program. The conclusion was that even though we recycle and don’t litter and even pick up other people’s trash and use natural materials and grow some of our own food and use public transportation and generally try to have a small ecological footprint, it isn’t really enough. So, our last project was teaching other people how to help the earth and Shaye’s way of doing this was to dictate a letter for this blog. Here it is:

Dear people,

The earth is sad because people make the earth sick sometimes. Please help us make the earth better and protect the earth.

You don’t throw trash on the ground or in the water and litter. Only put trash in the garbage can or recycling. Our hands are little and we can’t pick up all the trash. Don’t leave your chocolate eggs on the ground.

You should go on the train and ride a bike or walk with your high-heeled shoes. Don’t drive cars too much.

Please use wood and glass and cloth and pinecones to make toys. Don’t use too much plastic.

Make a garden. Grow some apples and strawberries and beans and stuff like that. That helps the earth too.

We have to tell other people that the earth is alive and we have to help the earth.

Thanks for your help.

Shaye
